Of course you can, but buy another brand or model that doesn't require a stupid charging stand. There is absolutely no reason why the cord could not plug directly into the shaver. There are no electronics in the stand.
Yes this is a crazy waste of plastic. One other thing is this always has a $50 or $100 coupon available. Why not show the real price rather then try to trick people by making them think they are getting a real deal when they are not. Really, check beck next month or the month after that you will find this razor with a $50 or $100 coupon. Not cool.
